Drugs: Moms & Dads need to learn from their kids


It seems like the boomer population is inhaling a bit more than their kids.  And AP article, Drug Use Up for Boomers, Down for Teens, by Kevin Freking says:

The government reported Thursday that 4.4 percent of baby boomers ages 50 to 59 indicated that they had used illicit drugs in the past month. It marks the third consecutive yearly increase recorded for that age group by the National Survey on Drug Use and Health.

Meanwhile, illicit drug use among young teens went down for the third consecutive year — from 11.6 percent in 2002 to 9.9 percent in 2005.

What do you think?  If you are boomer, Xer, or GenY, what is this all about?  Next, "Mom,turn down that racket you call music!"
